Just a reminder that we have a new dismissal time this year. We now dismiss at 3:15 for all levels. Please be mindful of this. When parents pick up 20 or 30 (or more) minutes early each day, they deny their children valuable learning time. We still provide a 15 minute grace period. All students that are not picked up by 3:30 will be charged.
Thank you.
It is that time of year again!
Highland has just started our Annual Fall Fundraiser. Your child should have received their fundraising packets this week. If you need one please see Mr. Brian. This year we have decided to do a Club's Choice Fundraiser and compliment it with Colectivo Coffee.
Important Dates:
All fundraising forms are due with payment on Monday, October 9th
Delivery date is Friday, November 10th.

**Note: Colectivo sales do not count toward Club's Choice prize promotions.
If you have any questions, please see Mr. Brian.
